Students of landscape architecture degrees develop skills in aesthetic sensitivity and environmental awareness, as well as creativity in emphasizing the practical applications of design solutions. A landscape architect requires an in-depth knowledge of biology, geography, as well as of the main characteristics of soil and air masses.

Landscape architecture graduates follow careers in lawn administration, maintenance and recondition of green areas. They may work as urban planners, landscape architects, cartographers, floriculture consultants, and more.
